Words From The Woods – An Evening of Poetry, Recitals & Music with Pippa Haywood, James Fleet and Theo May
Friday 25 August, 6pm
£10 in advance £15 on the door Booking
An evening of poetry, recitals, film and music arranged by Pippa Haywood with recitals by James Fleet, and music by Theo May.
Taking the exhibition Material: Wood – Design & Inspiration as it’s starting point, the evening will draw together strands from the fields of poetry, song and literature bound to each other by our relationship to Wood the material and to Woods the place. The event will include both live and recorded readings with film, and is interspersed with original compositions by violinist Theo May.
James Fleet is a well known and much loved British actor who has had a world renowned career in theatre and film, including “Four Weddings and a Funeral” and “The Vicar of Dibley”. As well as a roles in recent British comedy on television, he has a love of barns, wood, bikes and the spoken word.
Theo May is a brilliant young talent studying at the Royal College of Music. Those who witnessed his performance in “Birdsong” in March will identify with our anticipation ahead of this event.
Pippa’s wide ranging TV and radio work has made her a familiar voice to many. She is a regular reader for Poetry Please on Radio 4 and has appeared in numerous TV comedies and dramas. Pippa lives locally to Tisbury and has been a vocal supporter of our Barn and its programme of exhibitions, events and performances. This is the second event we have hosted in collaboration and furthers and interest we both hold in seeing how place and poetry complement each other.
